Mike Severns Diving is an extremely good outfit that caters to small groups
of divers with individual interaction. The staff was absolutely wonderful
to work with. Andy the captain was a one man comedy act, but took the
safety issues seriously. Warren was an excellent dive master. They took
time to point out the critters if we wanted to look. They also took pains
to get us to the dive sites we wished to see, instead of automatic trips.
We were allowed to dive our own profiles, with proper safety arrangements
made for unevenly paired divers on air time that didn't penalize the longer
air diver.
They made a special trip to the southeast end of Maui past Makena that only
is calm a few times a year. They advised us it was calm that day and gave
us the choice to go. Of course we did.
This is a don't miss dive outfit that caters to serious divers who would
rather not go on a 'cattle drive'.
They don't harass the wildlife, and all in all provided a very nice dive
experience. One of the best outfits that I have ever dived with.
A huge switch from Lahaina Divers and some of the other larger outfits.
Dive Makai on the Big Island is another fantastic dive team, also. These
two are very similar.
